Rob de Oude
The paintings and drawings I make are composed of meticulously placed repeated lines. The lines reveal geometric shapes and patterns. Repeatedly using a single unit, a straight line, displays the infinite possibilities of a synchronized effort. Overlapping bands and grids of colors and collisions of angled lines create an elusive sense of space, shifting colors, moires and deceptively bending lines. I mix an intuitive use of color, rhythm, composition and layering choices with a systematic mode of painting. These types of juxtapositions between intuition and methodology are part of seeking a sense of orchestrated balance with a single line as the building unit.
